Maine Real Estate License Requirements

In Maine, exams, licensing, and continuing education for real estate agents are governed by the Maine Real Estate Commission.

There are three basic real estate licenses in Maine, a real estate sales agent license, an associate real estate broker license, and a real estate broker / designated broker's license. Generally, a real estate sales agent license allows the holder to sell real estate only under the auspices of a licensed broker. (Salesperson's licenses are generally what people refer to when they say they have a real estate license.)

To obtain the salesperson's license, a person must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have obtained a high school diploma or equivalency certificate (GED)
  • Complete criminal records check
  • Pass the real estate salesperson licensing examination with a minimum final grad of 75%
  • Complete the license application

  • Furnish a resume of full-time experience as a licensed associate broker for the one year (12 months) immediately preceding the date of application for a broker license
